Dark Light of My Soul


In the dark light of my soul
I get through one more night
the pain increases relentlessly
all I hear is silence
all I know is pain
Parkinson's controls
it shapes me as I am
into what I do not want to be
morphia flows inside of me
a poison not of humanity
then  I quietly pray
Lord guide my way
fight for me
I don't want die this way
as tears roll off my face
Lord take me peaceful as I sleep
my soul is Yours to love and keep

Go from me, summer friends, and tarry not:
I am no summer friend, but wintry cold,
A silly sheep benighted from the fold,
A sluggard with a thorn-choked garden plot.
